LonsdaleNET to Extend 1Gbps Broadband in Rural Cumbria UK

Friday, November 29th, 2019 (12:49 pm) - Score 641

Fixed wireless access and fibre optic ISP LonsdaleNET (Lonsdale Network Services), which have been running since 2012, has revealed that they intend to extend their 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network into more areas within the remote rural Eden District of Cumbria.

At present the provider only has a fairly small footprint on their “full fibre” network, which reaches through the tiny rural hamlet (civil parish) village of Melkinthorpe and was recently extended to cater for residents in the village of Gamblesby.

The ISP has now put in new application for Code Powers from Ofcom, which may help to speed-up the deployment of new fibre optic networks and cut costs by reducing the number of licenses needed for street works. The application reveals that they intend to extend their FTTP network “within and adjacent to its existing [fixed wireless] service area in the Eden District and to selected towns across the UK.”

Further details were not revealed, although the provider currently charges from £29.95 per month for unlimited access to ultrafast broadband speeds on their fibre optic network.

    Isn’t this B4RN territory?

      No B4RN don’t go up that far. They stop at just north of Kendal.

      Indeed it is! We are just completing the commissioning of our dark fibre network from Penrith to Northumberland (40xDWDM channels) and as part of that we are installing FTTH nodes at South Penrith, Langwathby, Melmerby and Alston. Possibly another at Melkinthorpe where we have had a breakout for some time. We will be building from the line along the A686 south to join our northbound dig coming up from the Kirkby Stephen/Brough area. Also we will be digging north from the A686 to join our existing net running east from our Warwick-on-Eden node which has been live for quite a while. The intention being to do the complete Eden Valley over the next 24-36 months.
      So looks like there will be some healthy altnet competition which is to be welcomed.

    Can’t see LonsdaleNET on TBB maps.
